Z Series 2 inch Fuel Level Gauge, 73 -10 Ohm
The Z-Series line of instruments feature a clean, full pointer for easy legibility and a 270 degree sweep dial face on the mechanical gauges. All of our Z-Series gauges fit into a compact 2 1/16 inch mounting hole, making them the perfect choice for any application.
This electric Fuel Level Gauge will work with a Chrysler or early Ford "73 to 8-12 Ohms" sending unit (not included). This sender style has a non-linear resistance: 73 Ohms just below "E", 50 Ohms at Empty, 25 Ohms at half a tank, and 10 Ohms (nominal) at Full. This range was used on many Chryslers and Fords prior to 1987.
Note: This gauge is designed for use with the original, non-linear sender only. Many aftermarket senders currently sold as "73 to 10 Ohms" have a linear movement, with 41 Ohms resistance in the middle of the scale. Using a linear sender will cause this gauge to read nearly half a tank when the tank is almost empty!
